1970s Kuchi-Style Embroidered Floral Cotton & Velvet Dress
This 1970s Afghan Kuchi-style dress consists of an embroidered velvet bodice and blue cotton floral skirt, with a red floral cotton overskirt and matching red sleeves. The velvet cuffs do up with two snaps, and the front of the bodice does up with five interior buttons and a snap at the waist.
There have been quite a few repairs done to the fabric. There is also some loose stitching, and a few small holes. Please zoom in on the photos for a better understanding. It remains a sought-after and wearable piece, and has been priced accordingly. It has been professionally dry-cleaned and is ready to wear.
